A QUIVER FOR LAPSED ROMANTICS is a 36-page, 7"x7", perfect-bound, limited edition collection of twelve 200-word love stories, paired with eleven postcard collages from Venice, California artist Ned Evans. Many of these stories have not been publicly released and some of these collages have not been exhibited in over thirty years. As a sort of "bonus track," a longer story titled "Attack of the Lionfish" is included as the afterword.
The back story is such -- I began the minutelovestories blog in 2010 and, since then, my 200-word stories have taken several forms through the voices of various actors in Los Angeles, in both West and East coast art galleries, as well as being adapted for the stage in the 2012 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Ned Evans, whose evocative images regale these bits of fiction and give them further reference, is an abstract painter and collagist whose paintings are included in numerous public and private collections.
